The Permanent Collection
The Public Art in Transit program expresses Metro Transit's commitment to excellence. Metro Transit encourages creativity and innovation in all things, including art in its public places. The integrated public art program supports function with forms that may inspire discovery in otherwise predictable spaces.
Metro Transit is home to one of the largest collections of public art in the Upper Midwest. To learn about Metro Transit's Public Art Collection (the artwork, the artists and their history), click on the following links:
